When not writing she is either reading, learning Italian, mixing with the Yorkshire glitterati, getting up the council's nose about a Dodworth Road Pedestrian Crossing or ironing school clothes. She lives with her two boys and a quartet of mad animals near her Mam and Dad in the middle of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

    443 pages

    This book has a thing for the number four, four friends, four romances, 443 pages and four was involved in another big part of the story, which I will not reveal. It was perfectly edited and was about four childhood friends, from England going on a cruise to celebrate a 40th (a 4 again) birthday and to reconnect. I enjoyed this book very much. It was chick lit at its finest. At times it seemed a bit dated with referances to the Twilight Zone, An Officer and a Gentleman, The Love Boat ect.. But cell phones and flat screen TVs were also mentioned, so I know the book was set in a more modern era. There were lots of English words and slang, some I had no idea about. There were strange food and drinks and clothing names. A cossy is a bathing suit. Who knew? This book was very clean. It had references to sexual activities, no details though. There are lots of wineing and dining. No cursing. There are adult themes but nothing graphic. It has a very nice nice conclusion. This was not a fast read for me. It took about fourteen hours for me to get through it, which was nice. This book really held my interest. I felt very sorry for Olive, she had the husband and mother in law from hell. Some situations were a bit impropable, but interesting and entertaining none the less. There is quite a bit of that droll, dry English humor, I am starting to understand and appreciate more and more. The is a lot of mentions of English actors as well. The characters are perfection in a teapot, pour yourself a cuppa and enjoy.

    Fun, quick read

    It was good on showing women learning to be independent until a mushy ending.
